The Corvette division approached Lotus with the idea of developing the world's fastest production car, to be based on the C4 generation Corvette. With input from GM, Lotus designed a new engine called the LT5. The engine was an aluminum-block V-8 with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves. Lotus also designed a unique air management system for the engine to provide a wider power band by shutting off 8 of the 16 intake runners and fuel injectors when the engine was at part-throttle, while still giving the ZR1 375 hp when at wide open throttle. In addition to the engine, Lotus helped GM design the ZR1's. The cars were often referred to early in development as “King of the Hill”. The cars had upgraded braking and steering systems and standard "FX3" adjustable active ride control helping to ensure that the vehicle had plenty of capability on the track. GM found that the engine required special assembly, and that neither the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky nor any of their normal production facilities could handle the workload, so Mercury Marine was contracted to assemble the engines and ship them to the Corvette factory in Bowling Green where the ZR1s were being assembled. The vehicle went on sale in 1990 and was available only as a fastback coupe. It was distinguishable from other Corvette coupes by its wider tail section, 11" wide rear wheels and its new convex rear fascia with four square shaped tail lights.
